      Cuts through oak as well as my gas powered saw
      As an arborist I have a variety of chainsaws for various purposes. I thought this would fit in for a small ground saw for general landscape use or limbing logs on the ground. I was surprised at the power and speed cutting through oak, I didn't have the expected slow down after starting the cut. I set the saw and just went to work like normal. I expect this would be perfect for a landscaper or homeowner needing occasional use. The recommended battery is a high amp hour high capacity battery and the saw performs much better with one of those. Just for fun I tried a regular 5 amp hour battery and I was able to cut but I could feel the difference.

      Excellent investment
      I already have Milwaukee batteries and chargers for other tools, so this fits right in with my collection. It comes fully assembled and includes a bar guard. It is heavier than I expected but also has more power than I anticipated. I find that I can carry it on my ATV or motorcycle for use in cutting brush and smaller trees out of trails. It won't replace my big gas powered saw for cutting firewood, but it sure is handy and portable.

      No Gas, 2-cycle oil, recoil cord, exhaust smoke, or frustration – just PERFORMANCE!
      I never thought I would choose an electric chainsaw over my go-to 2-cycle chainsaw but I have. This Milwaukee Fuel, 14 inches, 18 volt saw is incredibly powerful and so easy to operate and maintain. Gone are the old days of mixing oil with the gas, pulling the starter cord (at least a few times if you’re lucky) or the strong exhaust smell – instead enter the future with just the chainsaw, a battery or two, chain lubricant, and an attitude to dominate over anything that gets in your way. I tested my saw on some scrap building lumber lying around the yard and was impressed with its power. But it wasn’t until I took the saw to a friend’s country house that I witnessed the saw in real action with tree felling, limbing and bucking. We took on some fair sized cedar trees with no problems (my friend, who has been around chainsaws for most of his life, is now wanting to get this saw model for his own use). The unit is made with high-quality materials albeit mostly made of very heavy-duty plastic, an automatic chain oiler holds enough oil for hours of operation without refilling, the battery compartment will accept even Milwaukee’s large 18 volt/12Ah battery (I used a 6Ah battery), it’s equipped with a chain safety brake, onboard storage of an adjustment tool and a guide bar cover. As should be obvious by this review, I am very happy with this chain saw and highly recommend.

      The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 14 in. 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Chainsaw (Tool-Only) is an incredible upgrade from my 14" gas-powered chainsaw that I struggled with for years to start and restart. Hence it was a pleasure to use this Milwaukee saw and have it start by just pulling the trigger. I used it to cut down two large dogwoods that were getting old and starting to die. Dogwood is a hard wood but this saw had no trouble cutting through it quickly. The chain was very sharp. Although with an XC4.0 Ah battery it weighs three pounds more than my gas-powered saw, it did not seem heavier and even seemed easier to use - perhaps because of better balance. It took an hour of using the saw before the charge on the XC 4.0 battery was exhausted. The scrench is stored on the saw so you don’t have to worry about misplacing it. However, it is lodged in its holder so tightly that you will need a screwdriver or another tool to dislodge but that is OK since you only have to do that once per use of the saw. I really like that the bar oil chamber has a translucent window into it so that you can easily tell how much bar oil remains. It has a great oiler based upon how much oil the chainsaw used compared to my gas-powered saw. The battery compartment is huge to accommodate even the largest size Milwaukee battery. See photo. This saw may be a better alternative than a gas-powered chainsaw for emergencies since it only requires bar oil and a battery to be ready to go. The saw is made in Mexico and comes with a 3-year warranty.

      Power and convenience!
      This battery powered 14” Milwaukee chainsaw is really powerful and convenient. Compared to a traditional gas chainsaw, there’s no mixing of fuel and no frustrations with difficult starts. Compared to typical corded electric saws, (obviously) no cord to drag around or get tangled in your work. We had some snow and ice recently which led to some downed limbs – this saw made really short work of cutting them into manageable lengths. The cuts were fast and clean and the stated capacity of 160 cuts per battery charge should be sufficient for homeowners. All this in a quiet, no emissions package! Plus it comes with a hard plastic scabbard to protect the chain. Highly recommended!

      as good as gas with out the smell
      The Milwaukee M18 FUEL 14 in. is one one of the best battery operated chainsaws I have used. It comes with a plastic scabbard chain protector and built in area for the scrench. We had a tree come down in a storm a few weeks ago. So I filled it up with bar oil, there is a window on the side of the saw to keep track of how much oil you have left. This was not a problem after bucking up most of the tree the battery was down to one bar after a hour and a half and I had plenty of oil left in the machine. Normally when my gas saw runs out its time to take a break this one kept going. They say this does 150 cuts but I am sure I did more than that

      Super saw for home
      The Milwaukee M18 FUEL Chainsaw can do up to 150 cuts per charge with an XL battery. The brushless motor is good under heavy loads. It says REDLINK gives protection from overload, overheating and over discharge and I have found it to be automatic. I used the unit with 8.0 HD and a 12.0 HD battery and it does home tree maintenance, well. The saw can reach full throttle in under 1 second. It does need batteries and is not an all-day gas saw. Recommend a big HD 12.0 battery for bigger jobs or many smaller ones. The saw is lightweight, but sturdy and the weight is set more on the size of battery. Climbing with it in your hand is not difficult with smaller batteries. It uses a 14 in. Oregon bar and chain. There is a Milwaukee brand saw chain available. The very sharp chain helps fast cutting a lot. It has a variable speed trigger. It has an automatic oiler with 2.6 oz fill. It has an integrated slot for the combo screw driver wrench (Scrench). Takes all M18 batteries. Because it’s battery it can be carried without operation and starts without throwing an arm in the air. The brake is electrical cut off and physical and stops immediately. Very Safe.

      Works Great
      We decided to add to our Milwaukee tool collection by obtaining the Milwaukee M18 FUEL 14 in. 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Chainsaw (Tool-Only). We have come to rely upon our Milwaukee tools for auto, home and lawn maintenance as a DIY'er. The Milwaukee Cordless Chainsaw has met our expectations with the ability to carryout multiple heavy cuts with less hassle than a comparable gas chainsaw. The batteries that we were already using just made swapping to a fresh battery with others recharging a simple task. Very pleased with this chainsaws cutting ability and would highly recommend for your consideration.

      Leaks bar oil until empty
      This saw would be amazing if it didn’t leak out the bar oil all over my shelf and floor. Took it apart couldn’t find anything defective. Better off not using any bar and chain oil at all. What a freaking mess every time. Going back to Husqvarna 2 stroke. I’ll wait till MKE releases a GEN III before I try this again. Hopefully it they’ll have this issue fixed

        Devoted Milwaukee User. This time though . The saw lacks balance and is heavy. In addition it is extremely long in length compared to competitors Milwaukee missed the boat on this one
